    Wow, stunning!

    I received a Mini Purple var. coerulea 'Sato' only yesterday so I now can't wait for it to bloom after seeing yours

    Default LOVELY!

    They're both lovely. Your rustic looks like my Blc. Hawaiian Leopard.

    I have mini purple x digbyana...hasn't bloomed yet (still too small).

    My digbyana just started to open when I left for LA. I thought it would be okay for a week, with a good soaking the day I left. Alas, no...it didn't survive. (The flower that is - the plant is fine.) I did get to enjoy Diane's lovely blooms, so I can't complain too much, but it was sad that the flower didn't make it.

    Diane, your mini purple bloomed so young, mine is at least twice your size, but still no sign of spike.

    This is a very small plant, only 3" tall, but it is about 14 years old. It is the growers original stud plant. I just repotted a little while ago and removed some old growths that had no roots. I don't expect it will ever be any taller. It blooms twice a year.
